The development of partnerships with six tribal institutions to advance digital preservation and curation learning opportunities, which would include three one-year fellowships at partner institutions, workshops and discussions for 25 tribal cultural workers to develop a community of practice, and service-learning projects for 15 graduate students.

Wisconsin Library Services (WiLS), in partnership with the University of Wisconsin-Madison Information School and tribal community partners, will offer applied learning opportunities in digital preservation and curation for tribal cultural workers, early-career preservation professionals, and graduate students in archives and information science programs, while advancing the ongoing work of tribal libraries, archives, and museums to collect, preserve, and provide appropriate access to cultural patrimony. Curating Indigenous Digital Collections will support three one-year Fellows placed with six tribal Partners. Fellows will support Partners in developing and implementing digital projects using Mukurtu CMS, a content management system designed to meet the unique needs of Indigenous communities. As Native Nations face massive losses of knowledge and knowledge keepers, this project provides critical support to build local capacities and protect tribal identity and sovereignty.
